    Today I managed my first (intentional) wheelie on the TA. :D I'm sure some of you won't be too impressed with that but I was beginning to think it wasn't possible without giving stupid amounts of right hand. Just need more practise now to get them every time, where I want them.

    I've held a FULL licence for 20 years (catagory A only), but only recently (4 years ago) passed my Cat B (car).. Yet when I apply for car insurance they always ask how long I've had a FULL licence and not How long have I had full catagory B entitlement... So what is the proper answer to the...

    Ok I know its a dumb one but a fun one anyway, who can and who cant hoist their front wheel at will, Ive got an XR250R running a standard front sprocked and dropped to a 39tooth rear sprocket, (helps with the 15mile commute to work). Now I reckon its a complete lack of talent on my side and also...

    i was with a friend of mine on my @ and waiting for the traffic lights to turn green at the front line. i geared one and pulled in he throttle, left the clutch and the front wheel raised to a knee height. i liked it and went to an empty street and did it once but was unable to hold it more...
  16. Africa Twin
    I was wondering if it was possible to wheelie using an RD04 @. If possible, i would like to have the hint as its soooooo amazing. I saw a guy on youtube doing it and said y not me???? :D I tried but the tyre couldnt lift as the bike is damn heavy. :rolleyes:
  17. Africa Twin
    Can anybody get a good wheelie on a AT? I try but fail everytime ([email protected] a bit of a chicken). Cluck Cluck. :oops:
  18. Africa Twin
    A 'friend' of mine tried...and failed. A light skittering was all he could achieve. Apparently. :oops:

    I've heard about these classes before, and seeing that I never learnt how to do them (I was told I was too good at clutch control from the start) I wouldn't mind to join one. Anyone know where any take place, especially in the SW?
